Recruitment in the Era of Artificial Intelligence

Jul 4, 2024

The era of artificial intelligence (AI) has begun to significantly transform and change the recruitment process, with 43% of HR professionals already using AI in their recruitment processes. As the global AI market is expected to surpass $1.8 billion by 2030, it is clear that this change and usage will continue to grow rapidly.

Recruitment is a process with a heavy operational load, requiring significant time and resources. Recruitment specialists need to manage numerous processes such as posting job ads, collecting and screening applications, conducting interviews, evaluating candidates, organizing all intermediate communications, sharing schedules, and managing the reference-offer process. AI automates some of these tasks, saving time and resources. So, where can we use AI in recruitment?

Job Ad Creation / Interview Questions Preparation: AI can automatically create job ads, saving recruitment specialists time when creating new job ads. AI can also generate interview questions based on the job ad content and the desired qualifications.

Resume Screening and Pre-Selection: Image processing algorithms can scan resumes to identify specific keywords and qualifications, including behavioral/skill assessments. AI helps identify unqualified candidates, narrowing the candidate pool and allowing focus on high-potential candidates.

Talent Assessment: AI-powered talent assessment tools are frequently used to measure a candidate's competencies and personal traits. Tools such as behavioral assessments, skill tests, and gamification provide detailed reports on candidates' strengths, weaknesses, areas for improvement, and personality traits.

Candidate Interviews / Video Interview Analysis: Traditional candidate interviews are labor and time-intensive for recruitment specialists. AI simplifies the process by leveraging data and analysis. Interview tools analyze candidates' tone of voice, attitude, and facial expressions to provide insights. These insights are combined with the candidates' responses to evaluate their suitability for the role.

Chatbots and Virtual Assistants / Candidate Communication: Recruitment chatbots provide candidates with information about the recruitment process and facilitate quick communication with the company. AI also assists in candidate and process tracking, sending bulk messages, and invitations.

AI supports and simplifies these processes and more, but what are the pros and cons of this transformation in the recruitment process?

Pros

Efficiency / Speed: AI quickly identifies the most suitable candidates through data analysis, speeding up the recruitment process, especially for roles with high application volumes. It reduces errors in large candidate pools and shortens the time to fill positions.

Objectivity: AI helps eliminate conscious and unconscious biases in the recruitment process, ensuring a fairer, more equitable evaluation process based on data-driven decisions.

Cost Savings: By reducing manual workloads, AI allows recruitment specialists to save time and focus on more strategic tasks.

Broader Talent Pool: AI provides a broader candidate pool by scanning globally. With job ads, searches, and integrations, we can quickly amass an incredible candidate pool, enabling faster recruitment.

Personalization: Every company's recruitment process is different. AI allows customization of processes according to company needs.

Scalability: While human-driven recruitment processes can only handle a limited number of candidates, AI can manage and reach out to many candidates simultaneously.

Cons

Biased Algorithms: If not properly adjusted and trained, AI systems can exhibit biases against certain candidate groups, such as favoring a particular gender or selecting candidates with specific demographic characteristics.

Lack of Human Touch: Despite AI's advantages, the reduced human interaction may result in a less personal experience for candidates.

Dependence on Technology: Relying entirely on AI systems can lead to a loss of flexibility in the recruitment process and slowdowns if these systems fail.

Understanding Corporate Culture: Recruitment specialists also assess whether candidates fit the corporate culture. AI is not yet adequate for these evaluations.

The Future of Recruitment Professionals

AI automates many processes and will continue to do so. Therefore, it is essential for employees performing repetitive tasks to develop themselves in different areas and focus on strategic topics. However, AI cannot manage relationships. Recruitment is a process that requires interpersonal communication skills, intuition, finesse, and understanding of corporate culture. There will always be a need for the human touch in this process. Many people also express that they do not want to interact with a robot in this process.

In conclusion, recruitment professionals will work alongside AI products and Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to create a fairer, faster, more efficient, and more balanced process. This collaboration will make human resources departments more valuable and strategic.
